2007 Cobalt Won't Start Very Well, Possible Fuel Pump Issue

I took my car into a Pep Boys over the weekend because I thought I just needed a new battery. When I go to start the car, it doesn't quite sound right and it sounds like it's trying really hard to start. It will eventually start, but I know one of these days, it's not even going to start.

It only does this when the car has been sitting for a while, and even after a new battery, the issue wasn't resolved. Pep Boys could only get the car to make that sound once, and they think it's a fuel pump issue, but they can't be sure because the car didn't make the same noise again.

I'm taking it to the dealer today which I am nervous about because I know they will charge me more than they should for this. Has anyone else had a similar problem? It's only a '07 with less than 50K miles!
